Welcome! I'm Head of Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. Although my philosophical interests are broad, my research largely centres on philosophy of mind, specifically consciousness, perception, and especially pain, pleasure, emotions, and other affective dimensions of our mental lives.

I was Principal Investigator of the Pain Project (2012-13) and the Value of Suffering Project (2013-16). Before Glasgow, I taught at Oxford, Bristol, and Nottingham universities. Before that, I took my BA and DPhil at Oxford, either side of an MA at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

If you're interested in writing a PhD under my supervision, see here and here.
